May 20, 2013

BETHESDA, Md. – The Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority (MWAA) has awarded Capital Rail Constructors, a joint venture of Clark Construction and Kiewit Infrastructure South, a design-build contract for Phase 2 of the Silver Line project. Capital Rail Constructors was selected for the project after submitting the $1.17 billion bid earlier this year

Phase 2 will extend the Silver Line 11.4 miles west into Loudoun County, Va., from the Wiehle-Reston East Station. Capital Rail Constructors will design and construct six stations: Reston Town Center, Herndon, Innovation Center, Washington Dulles International Airport, Route 606, and Route 772 Ashburn. Five of the new stations will be built on ground level. At Dulles International Airport, the team will construct an aerial station

MWAA is undertaking the Silver Line Project in partnership with Fairfax and  Loudoun counties, as well as the Commonwealth of Virginia. Upon completion, ownership of the Silver Line will be transferred to the Washington Metropolitan Transit Authority.

Jacobs Engineering will provide MWAA with project management services.

Construction of Phase 2 will begin this summer and completion is anticipated in 2018.
